This kinglet is common in closed-canopy, moist coniferous forests throughout the state. In eastern Washington, it occurs in most coniferous forest stands, even small fragmented stands.
Core zones of this kinglet were all those above the Ponderosa Pine and Oak zones and below the Permanent Ice/Snow zone. The Ponderosa Pine zone was peripheral. In core zones, conifer and mixed forests were good habitats; hardwood forests, fresh water/wetlands, low-density development were adequate. The Ponderosa Pine zone was treated similarly, but open forests were excluded.
The Golden-crowned Kinglet is one of the ubiquitous species of coniferous forests in western Washington. In eastern Washington, it is less common (though still quite common) in the high, drier forests, where Ruby-crowned Kinglets are abundant. Records from the steppe zones are undoubtedly migrants.
